"Czech-inspired? What does that even mean?"

Pivovar creates an authentic Czech experience from start to finish!

- Their craft brewery uses old-world style brewing and beer serving methods to produce the finest Czech lagers you're going to find in the entire city. (Cheers!)

- The restaurant features dark wood, tall ceilings, copper serving vessels, and forest green textiles to create a gorgeous European feel.

- Menu items include authentic Czech cuisine like classic schnitzel, short rib goulash, and European sausage platters.

- Pivovar even has a beer spa, which features a copper tub filled with warm water and brewers yeast. It contains high levels of vitamin B and active enzymes (carbohydrates and proteins) which aids in skin regeneration. (Plus you get to enjoy a Czech beer while you're soaking!)

Well, if you want the true Magnolia Market experience and you're a die-hard Chip and Jo fan, you might as well stay in their very own Waco hotel!

Hotel 1928 is a newly renovated 33-room boutique hotel in the heart of Waco. It's just a few city blocks from the Silos, making this one of the best boutique hotels in Waco near Magnolia Market.

The space is absolutely gorgeous, with hand-picked items from Joanna Gaines herself. The 50,000-square-foot building had been sitting vacant for a while, and Chip and Jo partnered with an investment firm to bring it back to life.

hotels near Magnolia Market in Waco-07

The result? Event spaces, restaurants, an absolutely darling sunken library, a cafe, a boutique store, and the coolest rooftop patio.

I will say this: while the restaurant's design and accommodations here are absolutely gorgeous, I've been less than impressed with the food here. But perhaps time will help Hotel 1928 glow up a little bit in the food and beverage department.
